  • Our clubs are scattered throughout the State of Queensland

  • Our clubs are staffed by volunteers and in almost every case they would welcome help from new members, both racers and non-racers.
  • ORRCA Qld Inc encourage groups of like minded people to form new clubs, and can help with information required to setup and operate new clubs.
  • ORRCA Qld Inc is the organising body and has responsibility for Queensland Championship events (Off-Road and On-Road) each year.

    In addition, we hold a State-Wide Public Liability Insurance Policy under which the clubs are able to operate, should they choose to do so.
